Throwback to June of last year.
A picture tells a thousand words
Running away from the impending doom of winter 🏃🏻‍♀️
Of all the blessings for which I call myself thankful, you top the list. When it's 22 degrees outside and we decide to take a waterfront walk in the freezing wind (disclaimer: not the usual hairstyle) you warm me right up. Counting my blessings today and every day with you, @brooookepitts
GANG GANG! #tanartuesday
Fort Trumbull is a fort near the mouth of the Thames River on Long Island Sound in New London, Connecticut and named for Governor Jonathan Trumbull. The original fort was built in 1777, but the present fortification was built between 1839 and 1852. The site lies adjacent to the Coast Guard Station New London and is managed as the 16-acre Fort Trumbull State Park by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Enjoying the end of the summer season (and this @citizenciderboston ) while Chris does all of the hard work and plays a concert in the summer heat 🌞 #summerpicnic #labordayweekend #ciderseason #heplaysshires

As I was taking this photo yesterday, a groundhog came barreling through the wildflowers and severely startled me. The groundhog was probably pretending to be the British in the War of 1812, launching a surprise attack from land (see, I read the stuff in the Fort Trumbull Visitor Center.) #latergram #forttrumbull #wildflowers
Instantly regretted going outside to take our walk today(so HOT) but getting to watch Ned get so excited seeing the tug boats guide a container ship up the river made it worth it! #littlemoments #happybaby #sweatingourfacesoff

Favorite baby purchase yet! Just smoothly handled a two mile run with my buddy in our gently used BOB jogging stroller! Love that I can bring Ned along with me now 😍 #fitfamily #healthymommahealthybaby #buyused #secondhandscore #familiesthatjogtogether
I spent 20 minutes tying to think of a caption this. Then I gave up.
Welcome to ‘Ground Zero’ for one of the most tragic events in American judicial history, as chronicled in the new feature film ‘Little Pink House.’ This is (or rather was) the Fort Trumbull neighborhood of New London, CT, where less than 20 years ago Susette Kelo and over 70 neighbors lived quiet happy lives. This barren landscape was a bustling working-class neighborhood where kids rode their bikes to school, and nobody locked their doors, and where Susette Kelo planned to spend the rest of her days in her Little Pink House along water’s edge. But city official had other ideas and wanted the land for upscale shops and condos and a new Viagra factory for pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Using the naked brute force of ‘eminent domain’ the city claimed ownership. For many years the 91-acre parcel was overrun with weeds and feral cats, but today not even they remain. Indeed it looks like a bomb had destroyed  the neighborhood. The only surviving structure, tucked away in the northeast corner, is the IDC (Italian Dramatic Club)— a men’s-only social club for the well-heeled and politically connected. Well actually there is one other structure-- a wooden sign that advertises, in the cruelest of ironies, ‘Development Opportunities Available.’

My tour of New London included a stop at Fort Trumbull. My excellent guide @johnnakaplan tells me it features in a story by Mark Twain called "A Curious Experience." Also, she has a gorgeous Instagram account you should visit immediately. Hurry!

Starting to look like October 🌅

Yesterday I was inside hourrrrsss typing/ reading infront of a computer.

When the time came, I was like a little  kid hearing the recess bell ring, ready to get outside.

Between working and dealing with the pulls of technology, sun soaked places like this are 👌

Ran into this guy during our port visit to Connecticut. Glad to be able to catch up with an old friend and show him around the ship.
You grin, I grin.

Our Labor Day weekend trip to Fort Trumbull was steeped in rich history and scenic views.

Not only did the fort overlook the entire harbor ⛵. It is also complies with modern 🔥 saftey codes thanks to the new fire hydrant installation.

First stop on this rainy coastal New England road trip: Fort Trumbull, a legit fort from the American Revolution. A little terrified of the weather cooling down, but feeling the changing colors. #🍁 #cannonball
After a long week... much deserved break. Sipping some @the_macallan paired with a #romeoandjulietcigar ... cool breeze... and sound of the ocean 🌊... equals awesome
Watch out Putin, Winston is in charge now.
I got some pretty good feedback from my last blog post from a couple of weeks ago so I figure I'd do another! Check out these two lovebirds on my blog! The temporary link is in my profile! 😘😘

Father daughter fishing trip! We were on the road bright and early🚘We stopped at a local Bait & Tackle and picked up some fresh squid and clams for bait.🐡🐟🦐🦀🦑I haven't had a fishing trip in YEARS. I had my grandpa's old fishing gear with me😌 He was definitely with me out there giving me tips from the heavens...🌥I have more experience with freshwater fishing, but saltwater fishing was a whole different experience! We had soooo much fun. We met some great people on the water as well. The fish were definitely biting! Right there I have a Sea Robin (aka flying fish) on my line. When you see them in the water, it looks like they are flying! Such an amazing experience! We will back in two weeks for more!☀️ #fishing #fishing #family #fatherdaughter #connecticut #newlondonct #saltwaterfishing #longislandsound #flyingfish #searobin #sundayfunday
your life is always under construction. You never stop growing even when you thought you've already had enough
"It's okay to feel like a beginner.

More importantly, it's okay to fail. 
It's okay to not know how to do something; the key is to unafraid to do it in the first place. 
Life is about mastering the art of winging it and still managing to come out on top more often than not."

Today #ontheblog, Curtis shares about what we learned from visiting the forts in the area. This one is Fort Trumbull, which was built in the Egyptian Revival style!
